Experience with GSI 14" Frying Pan

It's the Bugaboo. If you have it, do you like it?

Couple things, first the wing nuts that hold the handle on look like they could be easily lost, is pretty spendy for what it is, and I'm betting that rubber handle will get full of grease and slide right off like the ones from the restaurant supply house. I use standard restaurant quality stuff, you can buy from either Sam's Club or a restaurant supply for about 1/2 the price, and the non stick seems to last longer than anything else.



My 2, your mileage may vary.

We have the 14" pinnacle and like it. I also have a complete bugaboo cookset. Just be aware that while the teflon coating works great it is not that tough. I saw some in the store that were stacked on top of each other and they were all scratched and gouged. Have to use silicone utensils and pack carefully. When I'm packing the whole bugaboo set, I place paper towels or something in between. If you're comfortable with those limitations it works great.

Thanks. The wing nuts seem like a weak point. It would be too easy to lose one in the river environment. I was hoping to find a good pan with a detachable handle to maintain my dry box packing system but that may not be possible. I have a small pinnacle and like it but it has a completely different handle mechanism. And thanks for the info on the quality of the non stick surface.

Wing nuts aren't a big deal to me. Easy to replace or even carry a spare. And it still works even if missing the big handle.

All gear is a compromise. I'm happy with the weight and packability and would buy again.

Right. It seems like the best option out there, all things considered.
